Market turbulence, credit crisis, and pressure from governing bodies for additional regulation in the alternative investment sector are some important elements which we believe will put an increasing emphasis on the requirement to have a strong and reliable fair valuation process for alternative assets. Going forward, general partners can expect investors, auditors and regulators to scrutinise their valuation estimation more closely.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to understand the key roles and responsibilities of the valuation function, as well as the controls and requirements in regards with the regulatory framework.
